Abstract
Imaging and Technology in Urology: Principles and Clinical Applications is a practical and user-friendly consolidated source book for urologists, and urologists in training, regarding the basic science of imaging modalities used on a day-to-day basis in urological practice. Similarly, the intention is to provide an introduction to the technology that is used in the practice of urological surgery and the management of urological patients in the clinical setting. This knowledge is one of the eight separate disciplines examined in the oral component of the knowledge examination for independent, consultant, practice in urology in the UK. The book is also valuable to urologists and urological trainees outside of the UK and in other surgical specialities.

Abstract
This book provides a concise yet comprehensive summary of the evolving techniques and current status of interventional urology. The book is organized by organ system with subtopics covering imaging technologies, interventional techniques, and clinical outcomes for the vast variety of interventional urologic procedures. It represents the first single text covering these topics and will help guide patient management and stimulate investigative efforts. Written by experts in the field, Interventional Urology provides a richly illustrated, image-guided, state-of-the art review of this new field, that will serve as a valuable resource for clinicians, interventional urologists, interventional radiologists, researchers, and residents with an interest in interventional urology.
